Ep. 10- Gülnur Tumbat and Climbing the World's Tallest Mountains

Updated: Aug 3, 2020

Gülnur Tumbat (aka G) is a Professor of Marketing at San Francisco State University (and my former neighbor, lucky me) who is attempting to climb the 7 highest summits on the world's 7 continents. G will become the first Turkish woman to complete this feat, having completed six of them (Antarctica is last), and recently topping Mt. Everest.

On the podcast, we talk how G prepares for tackling the world's largest mountains (physically, mentally, and gear planning), and we chat about various climbs/stories regarding the 7 summits.

Featured Region: Marin Headlands, Pirate's Cove

Featured Drink Stop: Well, any hut in the Alps.
